by Tor Hyams & Lisa St. Lou
Performance Schedule to be Announced Later This Summer
A play with music about people dying to live. At Riverdale Manor, a retirement community in the Bronx, seniors contemplate the possibility of dying from a broken heart, if divorce is even worth it at a certain age, and when is the right time to have sex again. A talent show, with the promise of cake for dessert, sets the scene for a series of life-changing vignettes that debate what to do with the time we have left.
Single Tickets go on sale approximately 6 weeks before the 1st performance.
